Santa Venera is a town in Malta, with a population of around 6,800 (2011). This settlement is found in the Outer Harbour Region of Malta. It was part of Birkirkara until 1912. The oldest buildings in Santa Venera are Wignacourt Aqueduct and Casa Leoni, both of which were built by the Order of Saint John. A new church has been built recently. The football team of St. Venera is the St. Venera Lightnings, which bears the colours of the town: yellow and blue.
The flag of Santa Venera is a red flag with a white stripe and three red fleur-de-lys on the stripe, taken from the coat of arms of the Grandmaster Alof de Wignacourt who ruled the islands from 1601 to 1622. The flag was introduced with the introduction of local councils in 1993. In 2013, there was a proposal for a new flag with the colours of the town blue and yellow however this was not adopted.
